The research process has not only given me time to learn more about a subject I find so important, but I have gained much more knowledge about climate change in general, and the experience has taught me how to critically look at opposing sides to a topic just as intently as I would my own view.

In module 1, I learned ways that helped me come up with ideas to develop the main question I intended to answer in my paper: Are we sure enough about the alleged anthropogenic cause of climate change to embrace the uncertainties of geoengineering? In module 2, I learned how to find credible and relevant sources that had the information I needed. The process was very intimidating at first, but now I can find sources to use in my papers for making a strong, persuasive argument. The first major milestone of the course came in Module 3, the annotated bibliography, which was key in the beginning to a strong paper and my understanding the research process. I learned how to properly document my sources, and basically ended up with the foundation of my paper. I thought I wouldn’t be able to get this part right, but I was pleasantly surprised. The
